Monty's Crush of the Week

"Once Upon a Time" did it to me again...

Rose McIver
(The Piano, Hercules and Xena, Eddie's Million Dollar Cookoff, Maiden Voyage, Maddigan's Quest, Ozzie, Rude Awakenings, Johnny Kapahala: Back on Board, Legend of the Seeker TV series, The Lovely Bones, Power Rangers R.P.M., Predicament, Super City, Tangiwai, Cassandra French's Finishing School for Boys, Blinder, Once Upon a Time, Light Years, and more!)

Okay, here's something I said recently, and now I mean it more than ever, "I gotta go back and check out some of these Power Ranger shows! Some of the female Rangers are just gorgeous!" And it's so true! I had a thing for the New Zealand actress Rose McIver since I caught her on the Disney Channel in a couple of their original movies, but I had no idea she eventually took a turn as a Power Ranger! I actually never really watched that show more then on rare occasions in bits and pieces (did see a movie or two though). Initially, I saw her as a side character in Eddie's Million Dollar Cookoff, a DCOM made goofier than usual by the very outdated premise of a father (and everyone else, really) being ashamed and embarrassed about a boy who has discovered a passion for cooking (are there still people who act like that? If so, they should be expelled from the planet). Anyway, I'm finding now that this actress has been and continues to be very busy. Somewhere else you might know her from is "The Lovely Bones", in which she played the sister of the main character. However, what brought her back to my mind was her new role as one of my favorite females ever (if you know me, you know this), Disney's TinkerBell, on ABC's "Once Upon a Time". Okay, so it's not really Disney's TinkerBell, but in a way it is. I mean, let's face it, it's a Disney show and they borrow A LOT from the Disney cannon, even while making the characters' stories completely different. I gotta admit, I was nervous for the casting of this role, as the character is very precious to me (much like Ariel, whom they also have cast perfectly for later this season, but I already featured her here recently). But, I couldn't be happier really; I mean, despite how differently they are telling Tink's story. Though I would prefer to see a more traditional portrayal of Tink (not that I am not fascinated and involved in this one), I think the casting is simply excellent. Rose is cute, sexy, feisty, innocent, passionate, dangerous... everything you could want in Tink! I can't wait to see her again next Sunday and as often as possible after that! (though I think the costume would be better without the gold scarf thingy and with shorter sleeves...)
